The more you ride, the more you find yourself hanging out in mid-air. This is a good thing, but as your riding progresses, crashes become more dangerous because you're riding faster over steeper, more technical terrain. You need better protection, and the folks at Fox would like to give it to you. The Fox Women's Flux is designed for all-mountain riders who are doing more than rolling slowly down a smooth trail.
The Flux helmet is cut low in the back for added protection. This is extremely important for all-mountain riders, who generally ride more technical terrain than XC riders. the Flux offers about as much protection as you can get, short of buying a full-face helmet, and those tend to be pretty hot during the climb.
The Flux is a single-impact helmet, which means it does a better job of protecting your skull during a crash than a multiple impact helmet, but needs to be replaced after that first big impact because the EPS foam becomes deformed. The visor helps keep the sun and branches out of your eyes. It can also be removed. Fox's Detox retention system allows you to dial in the fit, so you can wear it however you find to be most comfortable.
Fox punches 20 large vent holes in the shell, so you'll get plenty of airflow on hot days. The vents are designed to force air into the helmet so it flows around and cools your head. An adjustable chin strap keeps everything snug while you ride.
The Fox Women's Flux Helmet is available in three sizes -- X-Small/Small, Small/Medium, and Large/X-Large. It comes in Black or White/Grey/Pink. It passes the following test standards for safety: CPSC, CE: EN1078, and AS/NZS 2063.
Air flow is important when training on a bike and the Fox Flux Bike Helmet was designed specifically to take care of that problem. With over 20 air vents, the helmet allows one's head to breath in warmer temperatures. A visor in the front of the helmet blocks the sun, while extra padding inside the helmet has the ability to absorb medium impact. In addition to a full-adjustable chin strap to secure the head, this Fox Flux Helmet gives more than capable protection for the head when testing out one's abilities on a bike.
The Flux helmet offers a deep rear profile for more coverage and 20 vents to keep your head cool and comfortable.Sizing.
